May 30, 2014


Large hole over Whistler yesterday morning, stayed there all day, while the clouds hung onto the peaks.

    Yesterday morning at the roundhouse.

    Satellite image from yesterday shows just how much cloud was around.

    Image from 20:00 hrs last night with a bit of precipitation.

    Still a patch of blue over the valley at 20:00 hrs, May 29, 2014.

    The large high pressure over the Pacific will bring nice weather for a few days.





Weather observations for May 30, 2014; taken at 07:00 Hrs.

2240 meters      -1, Winds were 15-40 KPH from the ESE
1860 meters      -1, Winds were 15-10 KPH from the NNE
1550 meters     +2, The base is likely about 100 cm.
  660 meters     +7, Valley Temperature, Max Temp Yest +16.


For the forecast, a weak split upper level trough with an approaching ridge of high pressure will bring relatively nice weather with the possibility of some showers later in the day. The long range forecast looks like sunny conditions until next weekend, with the chance of some convective cloud development and the chance of some stratus cloud moving up the valleys from the ocean.




    As of 07:30 we have broken cloud and unlimited visibility in the alpine.

    Satellite image from 07:30 Hrs this morning.


Models as of now have the ridge of high pressure pushing the lows to the North and East of our zone for the week.
